Free programs at H20, Family Y on Family Day

Families are invited to enjoy a day of affordable fun this B.C. Family Day.

Both Parkinson Recreation Facility and Kelowna Family Y facilities will be free on the inaugural Family Day long weekend holiday next Monday.

The province, in partnership with the City of Kelowna, will officially mark B.C. Family Day  with invited for free swimming and family-friendly activities from  10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

At four themed stations, visitors will be able to take part in activities and presentations like face painting, storytelling circles and opportunities to learn about B.C.’s natural riches.

To celebrate Family Day and to launch the YMCA’s Strong Kids Campaign, plan to spend some active time with your family at the H2O Adventure and Fitness Centre or the Kelowna Family Y in Rutland.

Both centres are opening their facilities to the community between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. with free swimming, games and snacks.

Donations will be accepted to the Strong Kids Campaign.
